Who we are
The Social Committe aims to plan and host extremely successful events for the student body, which in our view means providing both a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. We will be busy at work over the coming semester to continue to add to the dynamic social scene on campus.
Below you will find the profiles of our USG Social Chair followed by committee members in alphabetical order.
CARLA JAVIER '15 (USG SOCIAL CHAIR)
At different points in her life, Carla Javier has been a ballerina, a black belt, an OA leader, and a resident of good ole Rocky Top Tennessee. Right now, she is a sophomore, a psych major, a Prince writer, and a member of the Illustrious, in addition to being the Social Chair of Princeton's Undergraduate Student Government. She is resisting the urge to fill her bio with hashtags (#oops). She loves meeting new people, so if you ever want to talk about the next greatest social event, Lawnparties, or life in the bubble-- hit her up!
MALLORY BANKS '16
Mallory Banks is a good southern gal hailing from down home Charleston South Carolina. Committed to all things orange and black, she is always pumped to rep the Tiger Pride. While she isn’t quite used to new fangled things like… snow, she is adjusting to the fast paced life of the North quite nicely. She is Pre-med and it’s going as well as can be expected. When she isn’t loving Social Committee, she can be found writing and reading poetry, twerking, running, finding fun new indie bands to obsess over, at a movie theatre, stalking new psychological studies, and socializing. In addiction to serving on Social Committee, she writes for the Nassau Literary Review, the Daily Princetonian, is on the Religious Life Council, and also every other thing she can do in service to Old Nassau. She loves talking, so come up and say hi sometime!
REID BERGIN '15
Reid Bergin is proud to call New Orleans home. Although just a freshman, she adores all things orange (and pink). She's fallen head over heels for Old Nassau and loves to share this as an Orange Key tour guide. Reid is so excited to be a member of the Social Committee, and she hopes to bring some of the culture and spirit of the Big Easy to the Princeton community!
Olivia Bradley-Skill '16
Olivia comes from Burbank, California, but it hasn't taken long for her to consider Princeton her home. She loves the Orange Bubble and is a prospective Computer Science major. In her spare time, she enjoys obsessin' over her favorite, Beyoncé: she's seen Dreamgirls a bajillion times, luvs all her albums, regularly checks that tumblr account thing, and has tickets to see her this summer. She is super excited to be a member of the social committee and can't wait to help create some great and memorable events!
FARRAH BUI '14
Farrah Bui is a sophomore from Fort Mill, SC. She is a pre-med student pursuing a major in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology with a possible certificate in Global Health and Health Policy. Outside of the USG Social Committee, Farrah is involved with the Projects Board, SHARE, the Student Health Advisory Board, and is a research assistant for the Princeton Human Working Memory Lab. She is interested in studying pediatric medicine and global health in Brazil. Last summer, she worked in Silicon Valley developing a fashion iphone app and also conducted outreach to underprivileged college students at QuestBridge. In her free time, she loves listening to music, baking, and watching How I Met Your Mother!
Farrah loves being part of the Social Committee and serving the student body. She wants to make everyone's 4 years at Princeton some of their most memorable ones and is always open to new ideas and suggestions so don't hesitate to contact her!
JAMES EVANS '16
After traveling 3000 miles from sunny California to not-so-sunny Princeton, NJ, James headed straight to the admissions office and planked on Dean Rapyle's desk until she admitted him to the University. Ever since, he's loved everything about the Orange Bubble and its strange inhabitants. He especially likes to see Princetonians kicking back, rocking out and chilling hard, and that's why he loves everything about the Social Committee. On the side, he's also pursuing a B.S.E. degree in computer science (for some reason unknown to him).
LISA FEMIA '14
Lisa Femia is a junior from Washington, DC studying History. When not working on social committee, she is writing for Intersections, organizing events for Running Start, and loafing around Frist not doing her homework. She joined social committee because she enjoys music and event planning. If you have any ideas for her, just come to Frist. Seriously. She's always there.
BRYCE INGRAM '15
Bryce Ingram here, born and bred the New York way. A sophomore from the luxurious Wilson College, he is concentrating in Molecular Biology and is pre-med. One thing to be known about Bryce is that he laughs…a lot. You would not be mistaken to think it was him if you found a loud, boisterous kid (usually in the Frist TV lounge) with Beats around his neck, laughing at himself, with friends, or at friends (not maliciously, of course). Besides laughing (a dominant character trait), Bryce participates as a member of the Minority Association of Pre-Med Students, the Black Men’s Awareness Group, and volunteers as a coach in the Dillon Youth Basketball League. His hobbies include bowling (ask him about it), playing piano, listening to all kinds of music, and he is an avid sports fan.
Bryce is a recent addition to the Social Committee, who joined to listen to your craziest ideas and mold them into a fashion that can be enjoyed by the entire student body. For him, no idea is a crazy one, because most of his are pretty crazy, so don’t hesitate to speak your mind and voice your ideas about how Princeton can be an awesome social environment for all of us.
MARIANNE JULLIAN '13
Marianne ("Mars") Jullian is from Boston, MA and currently a junior at Princeton. Majoring in Computer Science, she is also enrolled in the Linguistics and Information Technology & Society certificates. While she loves programming, Mars hopes to pursue a J.D. post-Princeton in hopes of working on, or at the very least better understanding, policy surrounding some of the new cyber-issues arising today. When not in class, she enjoys pigging out on string cheese and candy from the C-Store or curling up on one of her favorite couches around campus to procrastinate online.
In her three years here, Mars has fallen in love with the people and environment at Princeton. As part of the Social Committee she hopes to encourage and spread her enthusiasm for the school, by working on events that provide students with, not only reasons to escape from work, but also reasons to be excited about life on campus.
NABEER KHAN '15
Hailing from the scorching desert of Paradise Valley, Arizona, Nabeer Khan is trying to bring the heat to the Princeton social scene without getting pricked by too many cacti along the way. He realized that joining the Social Committee was the only way to effectively achieve this goal. With willing ears and an open mind, he encourages you all to reach out with any sort of comment, feedback, or suggestion for both future and past social events on campus. During the warmer seasons, he can be found in a hammock outside of Patton. During the cold season, he can be reached via email. Academically, he wishes Princeton had a Neuroscience concentration, but for now he is pursuing a Psychology concentration with a Neuroscience certificate. Aside from the Social Committee, he gets to satiate his burning love for the stage, performing arts, and entertainment by choreographing and performing with BodyHype Dance Company and making music on the side.
SASHA LIEBERMAN '15
Sasha Lieberman is originally from the cold lands of Eastern Europe, but now lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, of all places. As a freshman, she fell in love with Princeton after her first week with CA, and Butler College quickly began to feel like her second home. Unsure of her major, she quickly threw herself into the campus life by joining the Social Committee and other organizations. She knew she wanted to play an active role in making everyone's Princeton experience as memorable as it can be. As a member of the Social Committee, she strives to do this by organizing new events, improving existing ones, and ensuring that these activities bring the incredible Princeton community together. Please feel free to contact her if you have any ideas for events that you would like to see made into reality!
MANUEL MONTORI '16
I am told Manuel Montori was a nice and normal freshman who lived in Miami, FL, but who had lived in Peru and whose family was originally Spanish. Recently, though, his vocal chords, feet, and ears suffered extensive, probably permanent damage after he attended the Ultra Music Festival, which is just five minutes away from his home (hit him up if you want to come next year!) His memory was wiped clean and replaced with a looping highlights reel: catching the Bloody Beetroots’ drumstick, being hit in the face with cake by Steve Aoki, gasping for water and/or air front at center at Deadmau5, and jumping up from sitting position with thousands of others at the Swedish House Mafia's last performance. He vaguely remembers joining social committee, and has pledged to bring the images of awesome that were burned into his mind to the Princeton campus. Seriously though. Come to Ultra. As they say, mi piso es su cama.
RICHARD POLO '16
Richard Polo grew up on the sunny beaches of California while learning how to navigate the constantly congested freeways of LA. The Orange and Black of Princeton were enough to lure him away to the east coast – a place with these mythical “seasons.” He has had to adapt to wearing long sleeves and, occasionally, even jackets. As a pre-med student majoring in Chemical and Biological Engineering, he can often be found working on problem sets or enjoying the pool as a member of Club Swimming. Richard also enjoys downing Heart Attack hoagies from Hoagie Haven and doing community service by turning off any stereo that is playing Justin Bieber or Nicki Minaj. He hopes to use his time serving on Social Committee as a way to bring much-needed events such as Lawnparties and Dean’s Date to provide breaks from the never-ending workload. Feel free to contact him if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas for upcoming events!
A.J. RICKS '15
A.J. is a sophomore from Newport News, VA. Slacker by day and Disc Jockey by night, he plans on saving the world everynight. He's learned the art of begging for work so well that he helped found he's own event promotion and production company in his home town. His only interests are "cheesesteaks and fat beats, yo!"
LOGAN ROTH '15
While Chicago is known for having the best hot dogs and windbags on the planet, its other lesser known claim to fame is that it is the home of Mr. Logan Roth. Logan is a mostly average dude who has loved music since he was a wee lad. Through jamming, festivals, concerts, and lessons, Logan has witnessed the power that music has in bringing people together. In joining the Princeton Social Committee, Logan hopes to similarly promote community and good times to be had by all.
Logan's other interests include rocking out with the Princeton Rock Ensemble, singing bass with Old Nassoul, and Lou Malnati's pizza. He is considering music, politics, or philosophy as his concentration.
NATHAN SEROTA '14
Nathan Serota grew up on a strict diet of disco and diet soda in Miami, FL. A tropical outdoorsman and Geosciences major, he prefers to spend his time on boats and on rooftops, and he has a soft spot for Institute Woods. Other interests of his include public transit, cartography, farming, and brevity. Put simply, Nate joined the Social Committee because he wants you to have a sweaty good time. He is nothing if not a crowd pleaser.
ANGELA SHEN '14
Prior to her arrival at Princeton, Angela Shen spent most of her days frolicking oot and aboot in the snowy mountains and shopping metropolises of the Great White North. Apart from her studies as an economics major with a certificate in political economy, she dedicates much of her time to cheerleading, the Princeton Social Entrepreneurship Initiative and Teach For China. After a series of misfortunes brought about by a combination of clumsiness and terrible luck, she's acquired a series of nicknames from her friends including "Mangela", "Cangela", "Tangela", "Killa" (there's a good story behind that one) and many more that will not be listed here. Having received a picture book entitled "Happy Hermit Crab" as a welcome-back-to-campus-gift from her roommate last year, Angela is determined to turn a new leaf this semester and contribute to the Princeton social scene. She would love if you joined her in her quest to embroil herself in more fun shenanigans around campus--send ideas and suggestions her way!
